Hoboken Mayor Met With Federal Prosecutors

From a gleeful Washington Post:

Mayor meets with federal prosecutors to discuss Christie allegations

By Rosalind S. Helderman | January 20, 2014

The mayor of Hoboken, N.J., met with federal prosecutors Sunday to provide information about her allegations that top aides to Gov. Chris Christie threatened to withhold Hurricane Sandy recovery money from her city if she did not approve development projects the governor favored…

A spokesman for Christie has called the Hoboken mayor’s claims "outlandishly false," and both of the officials in question have denied her account.

Mayor Dawn Zimmer alleged Saturday that she was approached in May first by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and then by Richard Constable, Christie’s community affairs commissioner. Each told her during in-person meetings that she needed to advance the development project to receive money she had requested to help protect Hoboken from future flooding. The city was badly damaged by flooding from the Hudson River during Hurricane Sandy.

We have one simple question. If all of this is true, why did the Hoboken Mayor wait a full eight months to report this obvious crime?

In a statement, Zimmer said Sunday evening that she had met in the afternoon with prosecutors at the U.S. attorney’s office for several hours. She said the meeting came at prosecutors’ request and she provided them with documents, including a personal journal entry she said was written in May in which she described the encounters…

So she met with the federal prosecutors at their request. Apparently, Holder and Obama are leaving no stone unturned. They are so dedicated to getting to the bottom of scandals — that aren’t their own.

    “C Christie run – Run Christie Run! C Christie Shunned – Shunned Christie Shunned!

    More proof for the moderately minded, “If you run like a democrat they’ll just vote for the real thing; Every Time.”

    NOTE TO RNC: You can’t outbid liberals! You’re dooming the party; walking away from the ideals that built it & the base that put you in office in the first place.

    Where is the contrast between socialism & the proven fundamentals of liberty, small government & real homeland security? YOU’VE BLURRED THEM!

    We know you in Washington above all cling to your own interests; even at the expense of America & We The People; all in exchange for you holding onto your own power; EVEN IF THAT POWER IS SHARED AS THE MINORITY.

    You have too much to loose; too much at stake; for YOUR OWN DAMN SAKE!

    For those who doubt another Ronald Reagan; the issue isn’t whether another will come along & galvanize those who cling to the value of liberty, they’re already here. The issue is when; before America succumbs to liberal transformation & plunges the world into war & darkness not seen since the middle ages; or after when it’s too late.

    You think I’m kidding? Look around. To quote Washington, “The Status Quo is Unsustainable.”
